NORMAL – Illinois State basketball coach Dan Muller announced Tuesday night that junior guard Daishon Knight has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
According to McLean County Circuit Court records, Knight was arraigned last Friday on one count of aggravated battery in a public place, which is a Class 3 felony, and one count of resisting a police officer, which is a misdemeanor. He did not enter a plea. A status hearing is set for Oct. 4.
A native of Baltimore, Knight was taken into custody on Aug. 26. He posted a $3,000 personal recognizance bond.
“We are still getting all of the details, and we will continue to handle the situation internally moving forward,” said Muller.
A transfer from Odessa (Texas) College who signed with ISU in the spring, the 6-foot-1 Knight is expected to contend for the Redbirds’ starting point guard spot. He averaged 19.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists last season for Odessa and has two years of eligibility at ISU.
The Redbirds will have their first official practice on Sept. 30.
